Hey Friends! Happy Wednesday!

A lot of y’all have been asking about work wear lately and what to wear. If you have followed from the beginning, you know that I used to work in the corporate world and professional attire was a daily thing for me. I posted my work looks fives times per week and gave y’all tons of advice on what to wear for work. Now that I don’t go to a corporate job anymore, it’s hard for me to still be in real time, but posting work clothes. So I try to post a few looks that could be worn for work or play each week!

Blouse + Skirt + Fall Transitions

Happy Wednesday! I’m writing this from Boston, MA today and can’t wait to take you behind the scenes on our vacation! Chris’s best friend from high school is getting married this weekend in Cape Cod so we came up a little early for a mini vacation! We usually always stay in Middleton with Chris’s brother and his family but we decided to stay in the city for the day so Chris wouldn’t get anyone sick. His whole family is meeting us at the Cape on Thursday! This will actually be our first family vacation with them since we’ve been married. I’m so excited!

Before we get too far into the vacation stuff, I wanted to share a work/play look with you guys! How perfect is the 3/4 length blouse? Tops like this are my favorite for cooler weather. I seriously go on hunts for good, flattering 3/4 length blouses and here is my first pick of the season! I am obsessed with the color! This green will be very popular this season. It’s a longer top but I have it tucked into a skirt in this look for a more professional look. I’m wearing my normal XS from the LOFT in this blouse and think it runs true to size! LOFT is also having 40% off EVERYTHING with code OHYES! They have the best new arrivals right now so make sure to head to their website to see more! [Read more…]

Happy Monday! Today is the first day of May which makes me sooo happy! We have lots of fun things to look forward to in the month of May. Both my mama and my brother have birthdays. My dad’s tennis team (UGA Women’s Tennis) will compete in the NCAA tournament in Athens. We are traveling to Chicago for a wedding then Boston for Memorial Day weekend so Chris can race in a half marathon. It’s safe to say that May will be a busy month for us!

When I was growing up, my mom never let me put away my sweaters or long sleeve tops until May was over. I’m sure you are wondering why since May in the South is typically a warm month. She always said there will be a few days when the temperature will drop and you will need your cold weather clothing. Every year in Georgia she has been right!  [Read more…]

Leopard Print is a Neutral

One of my very favorite prints is leopard print. I absolutely love how it can act as a neutral, if done correctly. You don’t need a ton of it, just one piece here and there. Like these pants for example. They are are the perfect statement piece but flow together so nicely with the purple top and denim jacket. I added a chunky necklace for a little extra pop.

Happy Friday! Can we all just take a moment of silence for the fact that we made it to Friday. Y’all, only a few hours until the weekend!! Who has fun plans??

As we get closer to Easter and the old rule of not wearing white until after Easter (which if you know me, you know i’ve been breaking that rule like crazy…) I figured it would be a good time to share my favorite, favorite FAVORITE white distressed jeans. Now these just aren’t any pair of white jeans, these are the best pair i’ve ever owned. Wear after wear they keep their shape, the make you look great and they don’t break the bank! Really, what’s better then that?

Why do you need these jeans? I love distressed white jeans because you can dress them up or down. So they serve multiple purposes within your wardrobe. You can wear them with a t shirt and sneakers for errands. You can wear them with chambray and sandals for brunch. You can dress them up with an off the shoulder top and nude wedges for dinner or a night out. There really aren’t many places that you couldn’t wear them. Simply put, white jeans should be a staple in your closet for Spring and Summer. Plus the distressing just gives you a fun, flirty vibe and who doesn’t want that?!

Where do you buy the best jeans? My go to when I am looking for denim is at Nordstrom. They have so many options and tons of different price point so there is something for everyone. Time and time again, I buy my distressed jeans from Topshop. I always gravitate towards the Jamie Skinny Jeans. They are a higher rise but they do run a little tight. I have two different sizes that i’ll buy in this denim. I buy size 26×30 if I want a tighter fit (that’s what i’m wearing in the pictures) and then I will buy 28×30 if I want a loser, more casual fit. These jeans do stretch out but if you are in between sizes I would honestly go up. They have a helpful size guide for your reference here.

Another great thing about these jeans is the length. I buy mine in the 30″ option but they do have a 32″ option for all my tall girls. The 30″ hits my leg right above my ankle which is perfect for all types of shoes. And lastly, the price comes in under $100 at $75. I think that’s really good for the quality and gives the option to buy both the distressed and regular jeans without feeling like you broke the bank.

Today i’m going for a casual look and i’ve paired my white distressed jeans with this cross neck pink top, also from Topshop. This is one of those tops that you need in every color. It’s the best basic I own right now. I sized up and i’m wearing a US 4. I typically wear either a 2 or 4 in Topshop and with this shirt I wanted it a little longer for the option to wear tucked or untucked. The color is a mauve/blush and will look great with everything. It also comes in black and is only $28!!

Cheers to the weekend pretty friends! Thank you for stopping by and thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring today’s post!

Monday…We meet again. But this Monday is different. This is a happy Monday. Why? You might ask….Well I recently found the cutest ruffle hem shorts and I finally get to share them with you today!!

I was recently shopping at Nordstrom for a few Spring pieces. I love when Nordstrom puts out their Spring New Arrivals. It just feels like part of the Spring process. Flowers are blooming outside, the weather is getting warmer, and Nordstrom puts out their new Spring trends…that’s normal right??

Anyway, I’ve been looking for a pair of shorts that had a little pizazz to them! I wanted something that was cute yet versatile and something I could wear multiple times throughout the summer. I always start in the Topshop section at my local Nordstrom because I honestly get so much inspiration from that brand. That’s when I spotted these blush ruffle hemmed beauties! If you know me you know I love all things blush and ruffles so when something is a mix of the two, it’s almost a guarantee I need it! I couldn’t pick them up off the rack fast enough! Thankfully the sweet Nordstrom customer service representative was close by to give her two sense on how cute the shorts were and I was in the dressing room shortly thereafter swooning over the cutest shorts i’ve ever seen.

The shorts are a little high waisted, have pockets and a zip closure on the side. I think they will pair nicely with a crop top, oversized Spring sweater or ruffled bodysuit. They run true to size and i’m wearing a size 2.

Side note on Topshop sizing…The US size is always going to be listed on the tag if you are in store or will be the number in the parenthesis if you are shopping online. They also have a really helpful size guide if you are not sure which size to order.

I didn’t immediately decide to pair the shorts with this white cami but i’m so glad I did. I kind of think this looks almost like a romper and I really like that (Just another way these shorts become versatile!). So this cami…It’s very flowy and the front is made of two layers. It’s perfect for layering under a sweater, for pairing with shorts or for tucking it. I think this cami runs true to size and I am wearing a size 2. I also purchased the same cami in this charcoal color and can’t wait to pair it with white jeans – these are my favorites!

This outfit screams date night! I remember trying it on when I got home and Chris was like, “When is our next date night? You need to wear that”! So you know it’s a good look when it’s hubby approved! I also think that you could wear this for Saturday brunch with your girlfriends or with so many fun festivals and outdoor activities coming up, this is the perfect easy, yet very cute outfit!

The best part is that this whole look is very affordable. The cami is $30. The shorts are $55. The shoes are currently on sale for $60 – I have literally worn them everyday since I bought them. The clutch is only $25. And my gold necklace (which I wear all the times) is only $28! So that’s under $200 for a look that came together with staple pieces that you can mix and match and wear with tons of other things! I would say that’s a win in my book!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Also, thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post.
